Welcome back!

This is whistleblower related. And unprecedented in Australian/ media history.

Hundreds of secret documents leaked to the Australian Broadcast Corp( public broadcaster run tv) in 2017, referred to as The Afghan Files, are the basis of these raids.

https://www.abc.net.au/news/2017-07-11/ ... es/8466642

Frightening thing to me is we have always been in lockstep with the USA re many things, but this clearly coordinated attack on press freedoms here, weeks after an election, is a worrying turn, more befitting a totalitarian state like the US, than Australia.

Where are we heading?

Only today Youtube began shutting down channels / mass removal of videos that they deem conspiratorial, likewise Twitter and FB. Press freedom and true investigative journalism is practically dead and if you dare report truthful fudge that exposes a Govts actions, you could spend the rest of your life locked up.

The saddest thing is the media here are now condemning these attacks on Australian whistleblowers, whilst Assange sits in a jail cell, with hardly a peep from the MSM from when he was arrested till present…

The hypocrisy stinks.


We need laws that protect truth tellers and journalists, not laws that protect the drymounts in charge.
Free and open democracy? Yeah, right.

Heres a video explaining…

It was below Xs post so it was obviously directed to him. I was trying to engage X in a conversation on Venezuela as he seems quite concerned about the U.S. stealing their oil. You obviously knew that since I didn't mention their oil and you did. Frankly, I don't care at all about Venezuelan oil beyond the hope that use the money from selling it to improve the lives of their people. You all caught up now?

We played that game last week, remember?

After you feigned sincerity then put me down in your first sentence of your reply, I realised you are not capable of mature debate...

I suggest you block me.

Yours Sincerely,

However...

Konstantin Kilimnik, a key figure in the Mueller report linked to Russia....was also a high level State Department intelligence source.

Mueller knew this and chose to keep it out of his report...turns out those alleged ties he had with Russian Intell weren't nearly as deep as his ties to US intelligence!!

Something is rotten in the state of Denmark.

Meanwhile, the US, desperate to build ANY case against Assange, is now using, as its star witness, a sociopathic convicted conman and sex criminal, involved in an FBI entrapment operation against WikiLeaks, who only recently left an Icelandic prison for embezzlement and fraud...

Unfortunately for Assange, the US does not have to reveal its witnesses testifying against him by law in order to get him extradited, so his lack of credibility as a witness, during proceedings, will not have to be revealed to UK authorities.

Again, something is rotten in the state of Denmark.

It ended almost as I expected so consider yourself blocked. That you don't see your posting style as a bit scattered is on you. My guess is that you aren't really capable of any sort or sustained debate because you are at your base a troll. You are better suited to just posting inflammatory remarks rather than providing an in-depth analysis on anything.

Keep on knocking those chess pieces over and declaring victory X.
